Hard Rock Wants to Know: Does Your Child Look Like a Rock Star?

HR LogoFor years, the Hard Rock Café has catered to the adult crowd. With great music history, amazing food, and a rock-centric atmosphere, adults were always able to have, not just a meal, but an experience. When you went to the Hard Rock, it’s impossible not to look at all the rock-n-roll memorabilia and remember the songs and bands that you loved.
However, one group has not been able to enjoy this: children! Well, I’m glad to say that the Hard Rock is changing all of this with their new Hard Rock Roxtars: a group of characters designed to give children an experience while you eat at the Hard Rock Café or stay in the Hard Rock Hotel. But Razzi, Sir Kingston, Styler, Buddy Jr., and Skiddley all want to ask the same question: Does Your Child Look Like a Rock Star?HR Roxtars Logo
This is a costume contest that is being done at Hard Rock locations all across the country. During the contest, kids eat free at a Hard Rock Café location with a paying adult, and they can win a Hard Rock Café gift card or a 2015 birthday party for 8 of their closest friends and family! So, for the cost of an adult meal, you child can eat for free (which is REALLY helpful), AND they have the chance to win amazing prizes. Who wouldn’t want to participate in that?
And just who are the Hard Rock Roxtars? Well, there’s:

o Razzi™, “the motherly type” who is famous for squishy hugs and keyboard skills
o Sir Kingston™, a British-invasion inspired rock-and-roller on lead guitar
o Styler™, a free-spirited and accompanying guitar player
o Buddy Jr™, a wild man who loves nothing more than a good drum solo
o Skiddley™, the lead singer and “Mr. Cool” of the group
